Does a parole officer have the discretion to lift a parole

This answer was rated:

Does a parole officer have the discretion to lift a parole hold for an inmate who has a current DWAI and has accepted a plea bargain or does he have to wait until the parole board meets?

Once a hold or warrant is issued for a parolee to see the Board for a Revocation hearing and if the matter such as this has been taken care of, then the Parole Office may at their discretion request a recall on the warrant.


Unfortunately, that is seldom done because a Parole Officer does not want to risk something happening with the offender where they would be held responsible and so once a warrant hold is placed, the PO will usually let it take its course and leave it up to the Board to either continue the parole or terminate it.
